Rob Hall Promotions and Shock Records are proud to announce the return to Australia of acclaimed Nashville-based Roots/Blues/Country-Rock Singer-Songwriters Kieran Kane and Kevin Welch, with acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Fats Kaplin and
Lucas Kane on drums & percussion.

Their sixth Australian tour since 1999 follows their success on the U.S. Americana Music Charts, where their current album “Lost John Dean” finished 2006 as the No. 4 album of the year, above even Bruce Springsteen’s Pete Seeger Sessions album, which their disc deposed from the top chart position after The Boss had spent 9 weeks in the prime spot. They were nominated for “Best Group/Duo 2006” at The Americana Music Awards held in September in Nashville.

Kieran and Kevin have been an acclaimed touring act in Australia since the 2000 release of their classic album - “11/12/13 – Live in Melbourne”
That release – recorded at The Continental by RRR-FM’s Off The Record, made it on to many critics “best of 2000” lists, with their “live” performances being voted Best Club/Pub Gig of the year in the Rhythms Magazine readers poll.

Kieran & Kevin’s previous album release “You Can’t Save Everybody” spent several weeks at No.1 on the U.S. Americana chart in mid- 2004 .

With a history of eighteen albums between them, Kane and Welch are the two main figures behind Nashville’s highly-regarded artist-owned Dead Reckoning label.
Kane first came to prominence with hip ‘80’s duo The O’Kanes and he is now an in-demand writer whose songs have been cut by everyone from Emmylou Harris, George Jones & Tammy Wynette to Alan Jackson – whose No.1 smash hit “I’ll go on loving you” was penned by Kieran.

Kevin likewise has a similar songwriting profile, with his songs being recorded by artists as diverse as The Highwaymen, Trisha Yearwood, Ricky Skaggs and Garth Brooks. Following his third duo Australian tour with Kieran in 2001, Kevin visited our shores twice, with his 2002 tour being captured on the recent “live” CD release “Live, down here on Earth” recorded at The Basement in Sydney with brilliant roots band The Flood, who then joined Kevin for his October 2003 tour, during which the Sydney concert was filmed for DVD release. “Plenty of Time – “live” is out now on Shock.

The upcoming tour will see Kieran, Kevin & Fats, joined by Kieran’s son Lucas on drums returning to The East Coast International Blues & Roots Festival
- where they were the hit of the 2000 & 2001 events, plus performances in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and a limited run of dates through major regional centres.
